    Megyn Kelly fiasco is one more instance of far right outmaneuvering media
    By Columbia Journalism Review

    IN JANUARY, when the story of four Chicago teens using Facebook Live to film themselves torturing a mentally disabled man was receiving widespread media attention, alt-right media personality Mike Cernovich and his followers decided—falsely—to link the kidnappers to Black Lives Matter, a movement for racial justice. Using bots and fake accounts, Cernovich and his followers tweeted the hashtag #BLMKidnapping 480,000 times in 24 hours.

    Although Chicago police and BLM activists debunked the connection, it spread widely on social media, thanks in large part to far-right sites such as Breitbart. The theory was so pervasive that it appeared in most media stories about the kidnapping, if only to discredit it. Cernovich and his audience forcibly changed the way the story was framed by pushing out the hashtag.

    With the rise of far-right activity online has come a dilemma for mainstream media: Should news outlets work to debunk conspiracy theories, or is it better to ignore them and hope they go away? It is an issue currently playing out in the debate over Megyn Kelly’s NBC interview with Alex Jones, a far-right radio host who has denied that the Sandy Hook school killings happened as the media depicted. NBC has come under sharp viewer and advertiser pressure to pull the interview, scheduled to air Sunday.

    Indeed, research suggests that even debunking falsehoods can reinforce and amplify them. In addition, if a media outlet declines to cover a story that has widely circulated in the far-right and mainstream conservative press, it is accused of lying and promoting a liberal agenda. Far-right subcultures are able to exploit this, using the media to spread ideas and target potential new recruits.

    A number of factors make the mainstream media susceptible to manipulation from the far-right. The cost-cutting measures instituted by traditional newspapers since the 1990s have resulted in less fact-checking and investigative reporting. At the same time, there is a constant need for novelty to fill a 24/7 news cycle driven by cable networks and social media. Many of those outlets have benefited from the new and increased partisanship in the country, meaning there is now more incentive to address memes and half-truths, even if it’s only to shoot them down.

      pretty much.

    So Trump is changing some of the travel policies for Cuba. Yet the embassies and mostly everything else will remain. So Rubio sold out for that? Seems like he isn’t getting much in return. Also I bet that the travel restrictions will be totally lifted at some point as Jeff Flake who is co-sponsoring a bill to lift it completely says that the bill has majority support and could get 65-70 votes in the senate.

    Wow! Rightwing conspiracies at work. These people are a plague on America.

    It took one phone call, possibly from a conspiracy theorist in Ohio, to shut down the Port of Charleston

    A phone call — possibly from a conspiracy theorist — prompted the shutdown of a terminal at the Port of Charleston Wednesday night.

    The Coast Guard responded to the Wando Welch Terminal in Mount Pleasant after a caller reported the threat around 8 p.m., according to Lt. J.B. Zorn.

    The caller said a possible dirty bomb — an explosive with radioactive material — was in four containers aboard the Maersk Memphis.

    The supposed plot was also outlined in a series of YouTube videos posted Wednesday.

    The terminal was evacuated until early Thursday when the containers were scanned and declared safe.

    Zorn and other Coast Guard officials at first said the caller was detained for questioning, but declined to discuss the matter further or provide more information on the man’s identity, citing the ongoing investigation.

    The videos show two men, known for pushing far-right conspiracy theories, discussing the possibility of a threat on the Memphis. George Webb and Jason Goodman have racked up millions of views on YouTube discussing what they describe as political corruption.

    – – –The first observance of Father’s Day is believed to have been held on June 19, 1910 through the efforts of Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington.— – [Looks like some “Fam” in there.]

    – –Sonora Smart Dodd (February 18, 1882 – March 22, 1978) was the daughter of American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart and was responsible for the founding of Father’s Day.

    Sonora Louise Smart was born in Jenny Lind, Sebastian County, Arkansas to farmer William Jackson Smart
    (1842-1919) and his wife Ellen Victoria Cheek Smart (1851-1898).
    William Smart was a sergeant in the Union’s First Arkansas Light
    Artillery during the Civil War. When Sonora was seven years old, the
    Smart family moved from Marion, Arkansas to a farm between Creston, Washington and Wilbur, Washington [near Spokane] in 1889.

    When Sonora was 16, her mother died in childbirth with her sixth
    child. Sonora was the only daughter and shared with her father William in the raising of her younger brothers, including her new infant brother Marshall. Sonora Smart married John Bruce Dodd (1870-1945), one of the original founders of Ball & Dodd Funeral Home, and had a son, Jack Dodd, born in 1909.

    Consumer confidence is lowest since Trump election
    June 16, 2017: 12:24 PM ET

    Consumer confidence fell in June to its lowest point since November, according to the University of Michigan’s closely followed index and survey.
    The survey noted that a few respondents lost confidence because of ex-FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to Congress last week.

    While changing sponsorships may be normal, the splits come after disappointing viewership of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

    June 16 at 2:21 PM

    LONDON — Fury and frustration with the government’s handling of a fire in a public housing high-rise that claimed at least 30 lives boiled over Friday, with protesters storming the local council office and berating Prime Minister Theresa May when she visited near the scene of the blaze.

    “Shame on you!” people shouted at May as she rushed into a waiting SUV and was quickly driven away, with police struggling to hold back dozens of angry demonstrators.

    — – O’Shea Jackson Sr. (born June 15, 1969), known professionally as Ice Cube, is an American rapper and actor. He began his career as a member of the hip-hop group C.I.A. and later joined the seminal rap group N.W.A (Niggaz Wit Attitudes). After leaving N.W.A in December 1989, he built a successful solo career in music and films such as a role in drama Boyz n the Hood. Additionally, he has served as one of the producers of the Showtime television series Barbershop and the TBS series Are We There Yet?, both of which are based upon films in which he portrayed the main character.
    Ice Cube is one of the founding artists of gangsta rap, and much of his musical output has contained harsh socio-political commentary. He was ranked number 8 on MTV’s list of the 10 Greatest MCs of All Time, while fellow rapper Snoop Dogg ranked Ice Cube as the greatest MC of all time. AllMusic has called him one of hip-hop’s best and most controversial artists, as well as “one of rap’s greatest storytellers”. In 2012, The Source ranked him number 14 on their list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time. In 2014, About.com ranked him number 11 on their list of the “50 Greatest MCs of All Time”.

    Now this muthafucking cop Yanez will not return to the force. I hope his conscience eats him alive. I hope Philando visits him in a nightmare. I am tired y’all…so damn tired.

    ……In a statement after the verdict was announced, St. Anthony city officials said they would offer Yanez “a voluntary separation agreement to help him transition to another career other than being a St. Anthony officer.The terms of this agreement will be negotiated in the near future, so details are not available at this time. In the meantime, Officer Yanez will not return to active duty.”

    Meanwhile, in a statement on the verdict, St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman called Castile “a son of Saint Paul — a graduate of Central High School, and a dedicated employee at J.J. Hill Montessori, where he was loved by his students and co-workers.”

    Of course the lawyers were smiling. They were successful in having the second most senior judge removed just because he was black. They also tried to get an 18 year old Somali immigrant juror removed, but it was so obvious of their racial bias that the judge sided with the state and did not allow her to get booted. Yet a white women who had many Facebook posts about police support was allowed to stay. The judge blocked the jurors from seeing Yanez’s testimony, ONE DAY after the shooting that contradict most of what he said on the stand.

    Of course these fuckers smile. That’s why Yanez is leaving the force, he knows he killed a man in cold blood. I hope Philando haunts him for the rest of his life.

    Trump Reports Hundreds of Millions in Financial Liabilities
    JUN 16 2017, 6:34 PM ET

    The U.S. Office of Government Ethics released President Donald Trump’s most recent financial disclosure, and it shows that the former real estate mogul carries at least $315 million in liabilities — $130 million to Deutsche Bank alone.

    The financial disclosure, a 98-page document, details how much money Trump has made, as well as what he’s liable for, through April 15.

    Of Course The Officer Who Killed Philando Castile Was Acquitted, Because Nigger Hunting Season Is (Always) Here
    Damon Young, 6/16/17

    I’m trying right now to find the right words to articulate the surreal inevitability of police-involved killings like this and the verdicts that follow. And I am not able to do it without repeating the millions of words I and countless others have already said when trying to find the right words to articulate the surreal inevitability of police-involved killings like this and the verdicts that follow. And it’s not just the words that are repeated. It’s the phrasing. The points. The punctuation. The pivots. The references. The rising action. The angles. The quotes. The climaxes. There doesn’t seem to be much of a point in not making the entire process templatic, and changing/inserting relevant details about the city or the cop’s name or the number of children the murdered Black person left behind when necessary. After you’ve skinned enough cats you eventually run out of cats.

    Still, I’ll try. Philando Castile is dead and the police officer who killed him is free — acquitted of all charges by a jury of his peers — because it’s nigger hunting season and that’s what’s supposed to happen when something is in season. You buy a gun and some camo. You stalk them. You hunt them. You shoot them. And if the body’s big enough you get a trophy. (Or perhaps just a raise.)

    Connecticut NBC joins boycott — refuses to air Megyn Kelly’s interview with Alex Jones
    16 JUN 2017 AT 19:59 ET

    A local NBC affiliate has joined backlash against NBC host Megyn Kelly’s planned Sunday broadcast of an interview with InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

    Connecticut NBC station WVIT — which is owned by the network — has announced they are refusing to air the interview, according to TVNewser.

    In an internal memo obtained by TVNewser, the station suggested that Connecticut NBC viewers who want to see the interview should tune in to NBCNews.com on Monday.

    “Whenever there is news regarding the Sandy Hook tragedy, we know that the pain resurfaces for our community,” WVIT acknowledged. “Because those wounds are understandably still so raw, we have decided not to air this week’s episode of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.”

    Jones is conspiracy theorist who is reviled in Connecticut for his false claims about the Sand Hook Elementary School massacre.

    This Cuba Deal Reversal Is Bad, But I’m More Creeped Out By How Obsessed Donald Trump Is With President Obama
    Damon Young, 6/16/17

    We have a few years worth of proof that Barack Obama is leasing prime real estate in Donald Trump’s Cheeto-adjacent brain. Beginning, of course, with the birther fiasco — the transparently racist pseudo controversy that made Trump a viable political figure and reminded us that Capital Letter Whiteness, if believing your Black ass to be a threat, will literally conjure shit about you out of thin air to satiate its nefarious thirst for racial hierarchy. His entire campaign and platform was basically just him touring the country with a WWBD (What Wouldn’t Barack Do) t-shirt. And since he’s been in office, the obsession with Obama has become even more conspicuous. Every week brings a new repeal of an Obama measure or reversal of an Obama policy. He even invited the heads of every HBCU to the White House for some ill-fated Obama-shaming photo opp, despite the fact that this nigga can’t even spell HBCU without a Lego teleprompter.

    Earlier today, Trump continued his creepy infatuation with his predecessor, announcing a new Cuba policy that either stalls or outright cancels much of the progress Obama made with the nation. Of course, the White House is spinning this as some sort of humanitarian altruism.
    ………………..

    You can only wonder how deep this obsession is. Does he try to get Botswana erased from the map because it rhymes with Obama? Does he refuse to say his name in private; choosing to just refer to Obama as “him over there”? Did he run out and cop a pair of Kyrie 3s to play golf in, just because Obama famously hooped in Costco Force Ones and he wants to stunt on his shoe game? Or is this infatuation more like a fatal attraction where Trump sleeps with a wax Obama mask every night? (Which might be why Melania couldn’t even sleep in the same state as this nigga.)

    This Man Cooking On A File Cabinet Grill Is The Blackest Thing I’ve Ever Seen This Week

We are swimming in the ocean of the Black TV Renaissance resurgence, we’re the driving force of social media, our music (as always) is the soundtrack to everyone’s lives, and well… the Carter twins are Black.

    Oh! And let’s not forget the Blackest event that will ever happen in the history of polished ebony: the nationwide premiere of Black Panther on Friday, February 16, 2018. It hasn’t even happened yet, but it is already the Blackest event ever. This is scientific fact, conducted by Neil deGrasse Tyson’s play cousin Tyson LeBron deReefer.

    Trump advisers and confidants describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets in the White House carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy to discredit — and potentially end — his presidency. Some of his ire is aimed at Rosenstein and investigative special counsel Robert Mueller, both of whom the president believes are biased against him, associates say.

    Jay Z Is Going To Bail Out Dads For Father’s Day
    In a new op-ed, the rapper puts the “exploitative” bail industry on blast.
    June 16, 2017

    Jay Z tackles the injustices of the American prison system and the business it propagates in a new op-ed for Time. In his essay, the rapper writes that since producing Time: The Kalief Browder Story, he has become “obsessed with the injustice of the profitable bail bond industry.”

    “On any given day over 400,000 people, convicted of no crime, are held in jail because they cannot afford to buy their freedom,” he writes. “When black and brown people are over-policed and arrested and accused of crimes at higher rates than others, and then forced to pay for their freedom before they ever see trial, big bail companies prosper.”

    Inspired by the fundraising drives from Southerners on New Ground and Color of Change that bailed out mothers on Mother’s Day, Jay Z wrote that he will be donating to those organizations to bail out fathers this Sunday on Father’s Day. “As a father with a growing family, it’s the least I can do, but philanthropy is not a long fix, we have to get rid of these inhumane practices altogether,” Jay Z writes before concluding with, “We can’t fix our broken criminal justice system until we take on the exploitative bail industry.”

    — –An investment group that U.S. authorities say is run by Russian mobsters and linked to the Russian government sent at least $900,000 to a company owned by a businessman tied to Syria’s chemical weapons program, according to financial documents obtained by CNN.

    According to a contract and bank records from late 2007 and early 2008, a companytied to a state-backed Russian mafia group, according to U.S. officials, agreed to pay more than $3 million to a company called Balec Trading Ventures, Ltd — supposedly for high-end “furniture.”

    Wire transaction records seen by CNN confirm that at least $900,000 was transferred.

    Both businesses are registered in the British Virgin Islands.

    The company allegedly tied to Russian mafia was called Quartell Trading Ltd., and the U.S. Department of Justice claims it is one of the many vehicles into which millions of dollars of stolen Russian taxpayer money was laundered a decade ago in connection with the so-called “Magnitsky affair,” perhaps the most notorious corruption case in Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

    Trumpism means an uptick in racially charged bullying in schools

    Posted by The Race Card on June 16, 2017 at 4:30pm

    While white politicians on the Hill scramble to beef up security for their staffs and themselves, children and young people in schools across the country are being the targets of Donald Trump’s hateful 2016 campaign rhetoric and his Presidential…idk…blabber.

    In an in-depth study conducted for BuzzFeed News, reporters confirmed 50 incidents, across 26 states, in which a K-12 grade student invoked Trump’s name or campaign message to antagonize another student. By ‘harassed’ BuzzFeed News means, for example, “a white eighth-grader [in Brea, California] told a black classmate, “Now that Trump won, you’re going to have to go back to Africa, where you belong,” the “third-grade boy [in Louisville, Kentucky who] chased a Latina girl around the classroom shouting “Build the wall!” and that time, on Election Day in Silverton, Oregon where “around three dozen students gathered in their high school’s parking lot, holding Trump signs and waving American flags. When Latino students passed by, teens in the crowd shouted “Pack your bags, you’re leaving tomorrow!” and “Tell your family goodbye!””

    By Erin White*, AFROPUNK contributor

    …………………………..

    The election of Donald Trump signified a dark transition into an era where the neighbors and co-workers of black, non-black POC, Muslims, immigrants, LGBTQIA, disabled, and mentally ill Americans told us that they either hated us or just didn’t care about us. And for the past 8 months, (white) society via political commentary and a zillion thinkpieces have tried to make the admission that the people not being cared for were reasonable casualties of political war. And coming from whites and cishet men, this was unsurprising. People with dominant identities, like whiteness or being cishet will sacrifice those they believe to be marginal within society on a dime. But now it’s time for everyone to admit that the carnal, hostile vote for Donald Trump was a hostile action against our children, too.

    No amount of congressional hand-holding, baseball games and joint interviews can erase what Trumpism has cost our young people.

    — – –Adam Wade (born Patrick Henry Wade, March 17, 1935) is an American singer, drummer and television actor. He is noted for his stint as the host of the 1975 CBS game show Musical Chairs, which made him the first African-American game show host.
    Wade worked for a time as a lab assistant with Dr. Jonas Salk on the polio research team. He wanted to pursue a recording career and signed with Coed Records in late 1959. He had his first major hit with a song called “Ruby” in early 1960, a cover of the hit movie song of 1953. Wade was popular in the early 1960s with vocal styling similar to that of Johnny Mathis. In 1961 three of Wade’s recordings (“Take Good Care of Her” (#7), “As If I Didn’t Know” (#10) and “The Writing on the Wall” (#5) made the Top Ten in the Billboard Hot 100 chart. These songs also made the Top Five of Billboard’s Easy Listening (later Adult Contemporary) survey.
